New Year's Eve Celebration


Welcome in 2021 at Summer Lodge with our luxurious two-night stay with music, wine tasting and delicious cuisine.


31st December - 2nd January 2021

Escape to the Dorset countryside and bid farewell to 2020 with our luxurious two-night New Year's Eve celebration.

Enjoy a whole host of events, including a wine-tasting experience with Eric Zwiebel, Master Sommelier, a Champagne reception and a Black Tie Gala Dinner. This two-night experience will also give you ample time to explore the peaceful countryside of Dorset.  


New Year's Eve

Arrive at your leisure from 3pm onwards to a warm welcome, settle into your room and then join us in the restaurant between 4pm to 5pm where our Cellar Master, Eric Zwiebel, Master Sommelier, will host a wine tasting. This is an ideal opportunity to experience new and interesting wines and make your choices for the festivities ahead.

The Spa will be open should you wish to unwind before dinner with a gentle swim in the heated pool or use the sauna. Wellness and beauty treatments will be available, for a supplementary charge, but we recommend that these are booked in advance of your arrival to avoid disappointment.

The celebrations begin with Champagne and canapés served at your table in the restaurant, followed by a Black Tie Gala Dinner with matching wines. Live mellow acoustic music will be played throughout. Although the restaurant and bar must sadly close at 10pm a half bottle of champagne will be delivered on ice to your room to toast the New Year.

New Year's Day

Allow yourself the luxury of a lie-in and then enjoy brunch from 8am until 2pm.  

The remainder of the day is free for you to enjoy as you wish; blow away the cobwebs with an exhilarating walk through Melbury Deer Park or along the Jurassic coastline. Perhaps borrow a bicycle and take a scenic ride through the quiet country lanes, have a swim in the pool, book a relaxing spa treatment or sit by the fire with a good book.

To round off the first day of the year a delicious three-course dinner will be served in the restaurant accompanied by acoustic live music.

Saturday 2nd January

A hearty breakfast will be served from 7.30am until 10.30am.  As we bid you farewell, we hope you’ll be leaving with happy memories, and that we will have ensured an excellent start to 2021.
If you’re planning on making any detours en route to take in some of the delightful sightseeing that Dorset has to offer, let us know, and we’ll prepare a picnic for you.
